Expecting an accident

I am very concerned about the increase in traffic coming through Castletown because of the ongoing construction works associated with the new bridge.

The traffic on Wessington Way, near Sainsbury’s, is frequently at a standstill, and there are often long traffic jams.

As a result, many drivers, including buses, try to beat the congestion by using Castletown as a short cut.

Not only is the traffic so heavy that I often have to wait 20 minutes to get out of my driveway, but the drivers don’t seem to slow down much on coming off Wessington Way.

At the blind corner on Dene Road, and at the entrance to North View, this is especially dangerous.

I’m expecting an accident any day soon, and I’m worried that someone will be hurt.

I hope the powers that be will take note and, hopefully, remedy the situation.
